How delicious!

Those who receive this award are of the sweetest nature. They are kind, friendly, funny, loving, eager to share their love for Jesus with others, and brave in their efforts to reflect Him to this darkened world. They are the kind of folks you're blessed to know, even if it's only in the bloggy-sphere.
Words of Affirmation is my primary Love Language. That's why I love receiving your comments so much. They make me feel wanted and needed and well...yeah...loved. It's the way I am. That's why I am so humbled and gratified when you say nice things about me. I may not believe them, but that's another story.

An absolutely huge thank you, therefore, must go to my friend Homeschoolmum4Christ from Homeschooling4Christ, for presenting A Peaceful Day with the True Heart Award! I feel incredibly honoured and slightly overwhelmed! If you saw me some days you wouldn't think I had a sweet nature at all. I do love chocolate hearts though - does that count?

After considerable thought, I'm passing the True Heart Award on to the following terrific bloggers, who I do believe meet the lofty criteria listed above:

Richele from Barefoot Voyage.

Richele is a true kindred spirit. I value her friendship highly, and her blog is one of my daily must reads. I fret if I don't hear from her for a few days.

Ruby from Mumma's Place.

Ruby and I share both a Reformed faith as well as similar approaches to almost everything else. She's still singing the Scottish Metrical Psalms, but I try not to let that colour my opinion of her...

Sarah from Eternity in your Heart.

A relatively new blogger, my friend Sarah really does fit the definition for this award. She's kind, friendly, funny, loving, and eager to share her love for Christ. She is one of the happiest people I have ever had the privilege of meeting.

Homegrownkids from Kerugma.

What can I say about this incredible lady? Homeschooling in Australia would truly grind to a halt if it weren't for her. She's an administrator of almost everything - take time to take a good look at her website and follow the links! Thanks for all that you do for us. You're a wonder.

Sue from Living and Learning.

I love living vicariously through the pages of Sue's blog. Life's sometimes hard for this lovely lady, but she never lets anything get her down. The love she has both for Christ and for her beautiful family in evident as you browse the pages of her blog.

That's five. There are heaps more. Like the ladies I gave the "One Lovely Blog Award" to. I still really appreciate all of you too. You'll find them under Awards in the sidebar. Oh, and Laura and Emma who gave them to me... and...


...and you too!

Thanks everyone.


  1. Wow! I really appreciate that.
    I think we even share a Love Language!
    For an old Scottish Psalms singer I think I'm pretty hip being on the net and blogging and all that, eh?

  2. Hey, given that you're only a year older then me, I'd say you're incredibly youthful - and hip too, of course!!

    You also deserve this award.


    PS I love the old Psalms...but you know that, don't you!

  3. What a wonderful idea! Thank you very much for your very kind words! You are valued! xxx

  4. Thank you so much! I am honored to receive the blog award, but I'm even more honored to have your friendship! I can tell that "words of affirmation" is your love language, because you are so good at encouraging with your words. Bless you, dear Jeanne.

  5. Hey, Sarah,

    Do you know that you can now put this award onto your blog and pass it on to others?

    The kind words are true, you know...

  6. Hi Sue,

    I am enjoying getting to know you and your gorgeous family as well.

    I love your blog!

  7. Hi Jeanne,
    Thank you for that huge thank you, and I'm honoured to be your friend. I enjoy reading your blog. =D


  8. Thank you Jeanne. You've left me quite speechless for once as coming from you makes it especially special.
    I have passed the award on to a few other true hearts.


I'd love you to leave me a message. Tell me what you like - and what you don't. Just remember that this is what we do in our family - it doesn't have to be what you do in yours...
